A lifelong angler and avid outdoorsman, Randolph moved to Jackson Hole immediately after college and began guiding clients down the Snake River. After several years of guiding in the valley, Randolph took a position with a local outdoor retailer that focused on properly outfitting clients with the best gear for their trips to Jackson Hole and around the world. His passion for fishing, hunting and skiing, and his knowledge and appreciation of quality outdoor gear led him to JD High Country Outfitters in 2014.

In the summertime, you will likely find Randolph in the fishing department, sharing his love and passion for the outdoors with locals and visitors to the shop. As winter storms blanket the Teton in snow, Randolph takes his enthusiasm for the mountains to JD High Country Outfitters’ ski shop Pepi Stiegler Sports at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, where has skied for the last 15 years. When he’s not in the shop, you are sure to find Randolph on the slopes or streams with his wife Kathleen and their two dogs, Gill and Greta

Rob Parkins

Rob buys the hard goods for the store after retiring from the printing business back east. He moved west with the goal of making a living in the fly fishing business. So far, so good.

Rob’s career in the outdoor industry has taken many turns. In addition to his work at JD High Country Outfitters, Rob is also a commercial fly tyer/designer with Montana Fly Company and serves on the Board of the American Fly Fishing Trade Association. He enjoys advising customers on matching gear with their needs and notes that the best gear for a specific customer’s needs isn’t always the most expensive.

He enjoys working in Jackson, and living in Victor, ID with his wife, Pam, and his two Labradors, Shang and York.

When he’s not buying gear, tying flies and advising customers on how to get the most from their gear, you can usually find him fishing, chasing elk with his bow, and practicing casts with a spey rod.
